Are you looking to launch a major renovation project, or perhaps even a new home build? One of the most important roles on these projects is that of the general contractor. While some people choose to act as their own general contractor, it is important to understand the important role a professional general contractor can hold on the job site.
The successful completion of any new building plan or renovation project requires a lot of designing, scheduling, budgeting, and perhaps most importantly, the implementation of the right team. Without the appropriate professionals on the job, there are numerous things that can go seriously wrong during a construction assignment that’s on a larger scale.
When organizing a crew for your new build or renovation project, don’t fail to overlook the benefits of hiring a general contractor.
Before you choose your general contractor consider that there are different levels of training, knowledge, experience and reliability. Get a referral from someone you know, check online reviews and ask for references.
Once you’ve hired the right person, one of the perks of having a trusted general contractor in charge is that you can sit back and relax with peace of mind that every detail is under the control of a construction expert.
There is a lot of time, effort and skill that goes into a general contractor’s job. Most homeowners don’t have the experience, resources or time to properly accomplish all of a general contractor’s duties.

Do you ever wonder why people choose to buy a home where they do? Sometimes the reasoning is obvious - stunning new homes with ocean views in a friendly Vancouver Island town make The Gales in Ladysmith an easy choice.
These residents shared with 1stView why they picked The Gales.
"We found The Gales after years of looking," said this couple who moved from Ontario.
"Our visitors tell us we have a “Million Dollar View” and we agree. The hilltop terrace design gives us a beautiful panoramic view overlooking Ladysmith Harbour and the nearby islands, with the scenic Coastal Mountains in the background.
"We never tire of watching the world go by from our bedroom, kitchen, dining or living room windows. You never know what you may see from resident eagles, to killer whales visiting the harbour. All of these scenes are beautifully framed in large picture windows in rooms with soaring ceilings. The skylight in the kitchen adds to the bright open atmosphere in a great layout.
"There is so much to do in our small town, and on the island. We are also within a short commuting distance of two major city centres. We feel very lucky to call this wonderful place home."
If you would like to experience the views and the meticulous high-end finishing of the homes at The Gales for yourself, contact Realtor Keith Mazurenko to learn more about the two new patio homes currently listed for sale.
